Unreal Tournament 3
The performance of the GeForce GTX 260 graphics card does not change in the previous three games (Enemy Territory: Quake Wars, Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare MP and Unreal Tournament 3) with the different drivers (to remind you, version 180.48 has a small start advantage as it uses the resolution of 1280x960 instead of 1280x1024). Nvidia promises performance benefits in Enemy Territory: Quake Wars and Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare MP but you must be able to see them on some “specific configurations,” only.
Devil May Cry 4
This game runs faster on the 180.48 driver in both display modes. So, you can have a higher average frame rate with this driver than with the previous versions.
S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Clear Sky
Performance doesn’t change much depending on the driver version here. This can hardly be taken seriously.
